    3. I am a new list member from the USA. My great grandmother's brother left County Carlow ireland in the late 1880's and settled in Australia. This list may or may not be what I need to I joined a few to see what response I get. His name was Nicholas King, born 27 Jun 1865 in Borris, Co Carlow, Ireland. He arrived in May 1885 in Sydney and married Mary Jane Patterson in 1888 in Hawkesdale, Victoria, Australia. They had 11 children, as far as I can tell, the oldest being born in Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. His remaining children were born and grew up in Lake Bolac, Victoria, Australia. My goal is to try to navigate Australian genealogical resources and my first impression is that they are less abundant than what I am used to in US records. I am hoping that my impression is incorrect and I figure out how to find more records than I have found so far. In the US, there are several great resources for finding obituaries and I am hoping this list can help me be able to find some for more recent family in AU. I do know when and where Nicholas died. I even found, eventually the article about his sad passing. I hope to eventually find others researching he and his descendants. I was fortunate to find a few cousins through DNA. That is one thing that has sparked my renewed interest in building a better tree of his descendants. It is finding those born or living past 1920 where the challenge is. I will sign off for now and if you made it to the end of this, thanks for reading. Warmly, Gail Jorgensen ~ Gail Schinnerer Jorgensen ~
